Directions

1In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, lime juice and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble the sandwiches.

2Make the spice blend: Mix all spices/herbs together until blended.

3Heat a large fry pan over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, and leave 1 tablespoon of bacon grease to the hot pan to cook the fish.

4Coat both sides of each tilapia filet generously with the cajun spice blend, pressing gently to coat. Put the coated filets on a plate while you make the bacon.

5Add as many of the filets to the hot pan as can fit, and cook until the underside is crisp and browned, 3 minutes. Gently flip the filets and cook for 3 more minutes. Remove the filets to a clean plate.

6Assemble the sandwiches by laying the hamburger buns on a clean work surface and smearing 1 tablespoon cilantro-lime mayo on the (face-up) top sides of each. On the bottom halves, layer a leaf of romaine, 2 to 3 slices of avocado, 1 tilapia filet, and 1 slice of bacon (folded in half or cut in half to cover more area). Top with the mayo-smeared halves and serve immediately.

We all enjoyed this sandwich. It’s a little spicy, so hold back on the cayenne if you don’t like that. Don’t skimp on the sauce. Note: The ingredients called for tomatoes and the receipt used avocado, so be aware of that. Both are good.
